SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Crowds are forming along San Francisco's waterfront, while San Francisco Bay is crowded with pleasure boats, tug boats and other vessels as the city celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Officials say tens of thousands of people are expected to flock to the area Sunday to enjoy a number of events taking place along a section of waterfront stretching from Fort Point south of the bridge to Pier 39 along The Embarcadero.
The festivities will be capped off with a monumental fireworks display Sunday night.
Because of the crowds expected and with no parking available near the Golden Gate Bridge, officials are urging people to take mass transit to the events.
The California Highway Patrol will also be shutting down traffic across the bridge from 9 p.m. through 10 p.m. for the fireworks show.
